Last season, in the wake of Cam Newton being sidelined with a shoulder injury, Kyle Allen started his first career game in Week 17 against New Orleans and walked away with his first career victory. Now, almost a year later, Allen will return to New Orleans hoping to recreate that same result.
When speaking to Charlotte media this week, Panthers owner David Tepper made it very clear that he will not accept mediocrity. With 6 games left in the season and the Panthers sitting at 5-5, Rivera's future may hinge on showing Tepper he can be anything but.
With Michael Thomas currently on a record-setting pace this season in receptions, James Bradberry will have his hands full in trying to stop him this Sunday when the Panthers take on the Saints in New Orleans.
David Tepper told the media this Monday that any decision regarding Cam Newton's future with the Panthers would not be made until Newton is completely healthy. Mark Inabinett speculates what that future may hold.
